and traffic. steve paulson, is it called? >> no. it's hot out there. turn the ac on, would you? >> [laughter] >> not as cold as a some areas. there's some that aren't bad. others are called. 30s, 40s, and 50s. the breeze makes a huge difference. santa rosa 39, 40 fairfield. they had a rather strong north of the breeze. brentwood 50, west 37, now 40 at 39 for san ramon. still waiting on some of these others. we'll see more 30s finally, petaluma in there, others in the 40s. including windsor at 45, bodega bay 49, northerly breeze holding comes up, north atlanta, that would with, northwest at oakland airport. debris still in place, cloud cover to the north, high clouds will filter through but it will be sunny and nice, getting hammered up there in the pacific northwest with the rain and snow. cold, mostly sunny, breezy, patchy fog possible. a little warmer on the afternoon temps, east bay up a
few degrees. mid-60s instead of low 60s. 5:00 in the morning. sal, what do you have? a gravel spill, steve. westbound 580 between hop yard road and the 680 interchange, a gravel spill taking up three lanes and traffic is suddenly backing up very quickly here. there was some road work overnight in this area, but usually it's gone by a certain time. now we have very much a big backup developing because three lanes are closed and one of the busiest intersections in the bay area, they've issued a sigalert that you can see. traffic is already very slow as you drive in this area. so please give yourself plenty of extra time as you drive on this gravel spill. let's take a look at westbound bay bridge. that looks good coming into san francisco. not a big delay. if you're driving in san jose, that is to look in good. the entire south bay commute is off to a good start.
let's go back to the desk. new developments in the paris terror attacks. the eiffel tower in paris is closed today after at -- after it just reopened yesterday since friday's terror attacks. a spokeswoman did not give a specific reason on why this landmark shut down again, but did allude to the current situation in paris. fox 2's alex savidge in our newsroom now with more on an important u.s. visit to paris just this morning, plus an update on that international manhunt for the terrorist in friday's attacks. >> good morning to you. germany news media reporting that three people were arrested today in a west german city in connection to the paris attacks. it's not known if any of these three are the mastermind or the attacker that authorities have been seeking, but we do know there are new concerns about additional attacks that still to remain. there was a video put out by
isis. they threatened to target washington, dc and security has been ramped up in that particular city this morning. also just a short time ago, john kerry met with french president francois hollande in paris. those two men shook hands there, outside of the presidential palace and kerry says there is incredible cooperation between the two countries as they work hand-in- hand in hopes of dismantling the islamic state. john kerry also announced the french president plans to fly to washington, dc next week to meet with president obama to solidify their plans to fight terrorism. >> so there is a clear strategy in place. and step-by-step, i'm confident in the momentum to come. so i thank you all and particularly again, i'm confident that over the next days, paris, which knows how to rebound, will do so. >> today, that fast-moving,
widespread investigation into friday's attacks still continues. police in france and belgium are continuing to root out suspected terrorists. again, three more arrests potentially took place just a short time ago, they are trying to find everybody who had a hand in that deadly rampage. french media is reporting there have been more than 100 raids across that country. there's also a report that six of the attackers from friday stayed at a hotel just outside paris two days before the massacre. and again, the manhunt continues for this 27-year-old radical. he is believed to be a member of the islamic state. and investigators described him as the ringleader behind this entire plot of that took in paris. it's unclear if he was one of the people taken into custody this morning. as u.s. intelligence officials continue to learn more about the paris attacks and the careful planning involved, there is quite a bit of concern that future attacks by isis may
already be in the works. and so dave, u.s. intelligence officials are cognizant of that and security is being stepped up in a lot of places including in dc. >> alex savidge, we'll keep checking back with you. thank you. the paris attacks are also complicating president obama's pledge to accept 10,000 syrian refugees. concerned that terrorists might slip in, the -- at the list of states opposing refugees is growing. we're showing you the list now. last night we reported 23 states were on that list. that number is now up to 27. those are the states here colored in grey. the united nations estimates that 4 million syrians have fled their homes since the civil war broke out in march of 2011. but the refugee issue is under even more scrutiny now since at least one of the paris attackers may have slipped into europe through the recent flood of migrants. california is one state that has accepted syrian refugees with 218 arriving in the state
this year. governor jerry brown said quote, i intend to work closely with the president so that he can both uphold america's traditional role as a place of asylum, but also ensure that anyone seeking refuge in america is fully vetted in a sophisticated and utterly reliable way. vice president joe biden addressed the refugee issue while at a clean technology conference yesterday in los angeles. he says the only way militants can win is if americans close the borders and allow terrorists to dictate their lives. >> nothing isis can do can threatened to bring down a government, can threatened to fundamentally alter the way we live, it can be what it is. acts of terror to try to get us to do that voluntarily. >> senator dianne feinstein agrees with the vice president and governor brown. she says california should not be one of those states that turns its back on refugees. happening today, the hot issue of what to do about a
documented -- undocumented immigrants. it will be debated by the board of supervisors. this follows the tragic shooting death in july of kate steinle along san francisco's waterfront. katie -- janine? >> reporter: it sure is a controversial issue. here in santa clara county, it's been designated a sanctuary city since 2011. but today, county leaders are going to look to see if they should make changes to that. the santa clarita counter -- county board of supervisors is set to meet today to discuss whether to amend the county sanctuary city policy. that status protects undocumented immigrants. but the whole debate over century city reignited this summer when juan francisco lopez-sanchez, allegedly shot and killed kate steinle along san francisco's waterfront. lopez-sanchez had been deported five times before. right now, santa clara county ignores retainer orders.
it does not hold an inmate past their release date if i.c.e. request that. the district attorney supports notifying i.c.e. about undocumented immigrants who have committed violent felonies. county supervisors are now considering changing the policy by reviewing whether it should alert i.c.e. about undocumented immigrants who are serious felons but just under certain conditions. we're going to be reaching out to county leaders later this morning to see if they can give us some comment. dave? >> janine de la vega from santa clara, thank you. new development in last week's tour bus crash in san francisco's union square. sources close to the investigations tell us here at ktvu news that faulty brakes are to blame. there's also new surveillance video that shows that city sightseeing bus speeding down post street when it's then hits a cyclist, the person walking and then several cars. and then smashed into a walkway. now city leaders are working to
change state law to allow tighter control on tour buses. >> i think the cpuc is very extended. they regulate utilities all the way to limousines and airport shuttles. i'm not sure they have the resources to make sure there's proper enforcement on setting a high safety bar. >> there have been past incidents involving tour services in san francisco just last year. a city worker was hit and killed by a trolley tour bus in the crosswalk right in front of city hall. and in 2013 a tourist suffered injuries to her face when an open top bus in the richmond district snagged low lying phone cables. police in dublin are searching for two young women suspected of robbing a bank. that happened shortly before noon yesterday. at the bank of america on dublin boulevard. according to police, the women entered the bank and handed a teller a note demanding money. the notice stated that the suspect know the teller and that they had accomplices who were at the bank worker's home.

in santa clara. the fbi and other law enforcement agencies are conducting security training for super bowl l including how to deal with bombs. the five hour security training starts at 11:00 this morning. most of the activity and the noise that will come with it is expected about 1:00 this afternoon. this event is closed to both the public and the media. today san francisco's board of supervisors will debate raising the minimum age to buy cigarettes in that city. right now, new york is the only major city that requires you to be 21 years old to buy cigarettes. and tobacco. those laws require buyers to be at least 18. san francisco supervisor scott weiner says making it harder for young people to get cigarettes means they smoke less. the san francisco chronicle reports a similar law was passed in healdsburg in sonoma county, but it's not being enforced there because of threats of legal action.

there, but it's not going to be gone until 7:00. this happened last night at 11:39 p.m. or at least reported. so i don't know what. i'm going to call c.h.p. and find out what the heck is going on here. does this commute here is ruined on 580 coming out of livermore. it is very slow. it shouldn't take all that time. i wouldn't sink. to clear up a gravel spill. let's go out and take a look at the commute on westbound bay bridge. that is backed up for a little bit of a delay here. nothing major just yet. if you are driving this morning on the 101 in san francisco, looks good approaching the 80 split. at 5:20, let's go to steve. >> sal, i would agree on that. when you watch certain people and meet them in person. >> right. >> yes. >> just a little bit afraid. >> can i tell you mine? pete giddings. he was very, very nice. cold morning here, sunny, breezy conditions, i should also add joel bartlett was a gem of a man. when you grow up and you say,

[laughter] that's not true. all right. we have clear skies. a cold morning, sunny and breezy, a little warmer near 70 as we head towards thursday and friday. next week is looking cold and wet. the key is the placement of where the low develops. if it develops overland, we'll be cold and windy. if it drifts overwater, it's looking like a wet week starting next tuesday. so stay tuned. this week, things are quiet. steve roche is up there in mendocino county. 34 degrees in willits this money. high near 65 this afternoon. steve, you sound like a weatherman. i'll by that. 34, 65, sounds good. almanac, 64, 51. 63-50. right there. 1932, the record, not that long ago. some of the records go back to the 1800s. 1953. 40s and 50s for some.

morning, sunny and breezy. a little warmer in the afternoon. that equals mid-60s instead of low 60s for many. gravel spill? what's going on? >> reporter: it's been there since last night. so i asked c.h.p. wide. they actually didn't know why it's taken so long. it's been there since 11:30 p.m. last night. westbound 580, the three write lines taking away from the gravel spill. it's not going to be cleaned up until 7:00. so maybe it's a little gravel. probably is. it's been there for a long time now. we hope at 7:00 is when they are going to open the lanes. there's also a big rig fire in this backup, westbound 580 near north flynn. so this whole commute, 580 is just a big mess now. messier than it normally is on 580. please give yourself plenty of extra time. looks like it's backed up way out there. so it's going to be one of those commutes on 580 this morning. let's move along and take a look at live pictures. the bridge normal, back up for

>> french media reports that police this morning recovered a car that is suspected of being used in preparation for the attacks. police also found six suicide bombers stayed in a hotel outside of paris just two days before friday's attacks. at noon pacific, the french soccer team will play its first match since the bombings occurred in the middle of a game against germany at the national stadium in paris. france will square off against england at london's wembley stadium. it will be lit up in red, white and blue to honor the french flag. >> i'm sure all the players have felt the last few days deeply, and they will give everything they can to make friends proud and likewise, we are all representing. >> british police are taking the highly unusual position to deploy armed patrols to the stadium.

for more than an hour between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. the berkeley chamber of commerce is one of the main supporters of this plan. they say businesses and restaurants have long complained the homeless block sidewalks and driveway customers. >> we hope these are gentle, thoughtful, creative ways of dealing with the problem. they are going to help the people in the street and the people who live and work here. >> we're not criminals. we're simply poor. we are out here as a matter of condition and not by choice. >> city councilmember linda mayo and other supporters say the city would provide 50 to 100 storage units for the homeless to store their personal belongings. the agenda includes this photo of a similar storage unit set up for the homeless in san diego although it's not clear if those storage units are the ones in the shipping container in the background or the garbage bins in the foreground. the ordinance also says the city will build and provide mobile showers and extra public restrooms if this ordinance
passes although it doesn't say specifically where those extra resources would be added. it doesn't include a timeline by which they will be built. back to you, dave. >> allie rasmus in berkeley, thank you. students at stanford are protesting university investment in the fossil fuel industry. more than 50 students are camping in the stanford quad as part of their demonstration. earlier they watched a documentary on climate change. one student released these photos. the students say they are going to campout and sell stanford divests its financial holdings from the fossil fuel industry. last year stanford stopped investing in coal companies after a similar protest by students. >> richmond's police chief is expected to be formally approved to lead the department in tucson, arizona survey. chris magness was one of three finalists for the job. today tucson city council is expected to officially accept him as the city's new police chief. magness led the police department for 10 years.

welcome back to "mornings on 2." santa clara county city leaders will take up a sensitive topic today. whether they should start cooperating with immigration authorities even though the south bay is considered a sanctuary. >> all this comes after an undocumented immigrant was released from jail and is accused of killing a woman in san francisco over the summer. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega, you are in san jose with more on this big story. >> reporter: dave, that deadly shooting in san francisco scared a lot of people. some were saying could have it be -- been prevented if i.c.e.
had been alerted the inmate was released? here in santa clara county, they are now looking at possibly changing their policy. today santa clara county board of supervisors are going to look on whether or not they should change their policy. they've been a sanctuary region for undocumented immigrants since 2011. board of supervisors had rejected proposals to cooperate with immigration authorities twice. today, they might amend that. this national debate over immigration reignited after kate steinle was shot and killed on san francisco's waterfront by juan francisco lopez-sanchez. an undocumented immigrant. he was released by the sheriff's department even though there was was a federal request to detain him for possible deportation. santa clara county currently doesn't alert i.c.e. about undocumented inmates about to be released. they also don't hold them past the release date if i.c.e. request it. that policy is going to be re- examined today. the district attorney's office has been asking the board of supervisors to make some
